I have added a separate record for vol. 2 at

This as per a request by Jeff Kaplan in a message at

Jeff, apparently it worked, as I was able to sign out vol. 2. I am certainly willing to do this for other cases I may encounter, but can you confirm whether I have done this in the preferred way?

It would be nice to be able to see the work before producing the page, but I cannot see a way to do this. In this case I turned out to be lucky, as the details of the description which I guessed based on the records in the Internet Archive and WorldCat turned out to be correct. But in other cases, such an approach might not work very well. I suppose the details can be fixed after the fact, but it doesn't seem like the most elegant solution.
